Excellent App, Only a Few Critiques

I’ve been wanting to get into pixel art for a long time, so I went looking for a decent app. After trying out many, this one definitely took the cake with its many features. The zoom/move option usually is fluid and easily accessible. Although it’d be nice to have a crop option, there being various sizes to choose from is pretty cool. Also, being able to duplicate your projects is awesome. I’d kinda want to be able to name my canvases, but that’s a minor complaint. I’m not really used to writing reviews, but this app outshined all the others so much that I felt inclined to.

I love it!

I pretty much just got the app and I’m very pleased with it! I love how there’s a very wide range of color that you can make, or choose from! It also gives you starter artworks for examples! Over all i only have one suggestion, I know pixel art is usually squares but what if there were other patterns you could use! For example maybe circles! Or even different canvas shapes! I know this is, if you agree with it, would be quite a larger project but I still thought it would be really cool! Thats all from me! :)

Alas, A Lack...

As an aspiring game dev, this App is/was very useful for creating the simple Tiles(128x128) I require/-d, yet it fell short of fulfilling my needs in bringing them together in a Tileset to Import into my game engine of choice. I’d to find another App for that purpose.

That aside, I am grateful for the simplicity of this App and its availability in the App Store. I have made the 0/30 Gallery work for me, but intended to watch Ads until I maxed it out. However, they do not seem to load for me. Not even the Bar Ad which is meant to be on the bottom. Perhaps because I have only used this App while Offline? And maybe because I have yet to figure out how to shut down Apps when I am not actually using them, being new to Apple products...

Anyway, if the Developer(or Rep) responds, I will purchase the Ad Remover. If the Dev amends a Tileset Maker as an Add-on/IaP(for a buck or two) then I will buy that too and bump up my rating the final star.

Thanks to you! I’m half a step closer to $50k/yr, now.
